    Conference "After the Summer Of Migration: Right-Wing Populism, Media and Affects"


    Organizers: Peace Institute (Slovenia) and University of Vienna (Austria)
    Date: September 16-17, 2021
    Abstract deadline: June 7, 2021
    Location: Ljubljana, Slovenia (online or hybrid)
    Contact: Mojca Frelih

    Description
    The conference focuses on the nexus between political parties, media, and right-wing populism since the so-called 2015 summer of migration in Europe with an affect perspective. The historical background is the erosion of party democracy and the rise of populist democracy. Classical political leadership is declining, giving centrality to personalisation and mediatisation of politics, and above all, populist leaders who exploit social media as new opportunity structures that are becoming a substitute for political debate. On the upswing are right-wing populist actors who aim at mobilising against the elite and internal and external others. The growing number of refugees fleeing to European countries along the Balkan route from war-torn and economically devastated zones fuelled the populist upsurge across Europe, as refugees were increasingly regarded as dangerous, culturally deviant, and a threat to the national security and the welfare system. The COVID-19 period has appeared as yet another crisis that deepened social inequalities and accelerated the invisibility of minorities. The conference intends to debate the populist production of politics of fear and securitisation, which addresses the emotions and affects of people and converts fear of economic and social decline into anger against migrants. The dynamic interplay between political strategies and media practices – the media-political parallelism – is of central concern, i.e. how the policy frames of the political field and the media are distributed and become common sense. The focus is also to understand how affective populist appeals shape public opinion on migration and how they mobilise people's political and voting preferences. This conference is the final event of the Slovenian-Austrian research project POP-MED.
